The Road goes ever on and on; Down from the door where it began;
Now far ahead the Road has gone; And I must follow, if I can;
Pursuing it with eager feet; Until it joins some larger way;
Where many paths and errands met; And whither then? I cannot say.

Monday’s Geocaching Photos

Being a bit of a miserable, wet sort of a day, not many photos were taken during Monday’s trip.

Once liberated from its well-concealed hiding place, Mick, Allan and Carole contemplated at length the extraordinarily large size of the third cache of our day:

IMG_0570 By and by they did get around to removing the lid, and inside was a ‘Travel Bug Lodge’ (I took the Travel Bug that you can just about see in the ‘room’ in the bottom left; to try to help it on its mission to reach New Zealand I will place it in a cache in the Midlands somewhere):

IMG_0571 After five caches the rain was really starting to come down, as we made our way across Foreside, which made me glad to be wearing something warm and waterproof and made me feel guilty for dragging Allan and Carole on such a route in such weather and without such waterproof attire:


The camera then went away for quite a while, only coming out near the end of our excursion when Mick found the well-concealed cache with eludes many of its visitors. It’s hidden under some moss about a foot in front of my left foot in this photo (and once you’ve found it, is of a not inconsiderable size):

IMG_0574 The next, and penultimate cache of the day, was the tiny one, which caused no trouble to locate. The hand and the GPS in the photo give the perspective of quite how tiny this little grey magnetic container was:

IMG_0575Had it been a nice day we might have taken some photos of the views of which we have taken many photos before. As it went, we were cold by this point so almost ran to the final cache and then back to Ma-in-Law’s, without giving a thought to taking the camera out again.
